Wildlands Network and Other Conservationists Intend to File Lawsuit to Protect Mexican Wolves

Because the USFWS’s final Mexican Wolf Recovery Plan, released last November, is not enough to ensure the recovery of the Mexican wolf, Wildlands Network gave the USFWS notice last year that we intended to file a lawsuit challenging the plan’s unscientific recommendations. The first piece of that lawsuit will be filed next week. Photo: Eric Kilby

Trump Administration Finalizes Deeply Flawed Mexican Wolf Recovery Plan

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finalized a deeply flawed recovery plan for the Mexican gray wolf. Responding to objections from state officials, the plan limits recovery efforts to south of Interstate 40 and sets population targets well below what federal scientists have determined are needed for Mexican gray wolves to be considered stable.

State and Federal Agency Justification for Limited Mexican Wolf Range Challenged by Preeminent Group of Scientists

A new letter written by eight internationally-respected scientific experts, published in this month’s Journal of Wildlife Management, directly challenges the information relied on by state and federal wildlife agencies to limit the recovery range for Mexican wolves in the United States. The newly published work provides significant evidence that the draft Mexican wolf recovery plan, released in June, requires revisions to be scientifically credible. Photo: Juan Carlos Bravo

Federal Mexican Wolf Recovery Plan Lacks Scientific Credibility

After reviewing key sections of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (USFWS) Draft Mexican Wolf Recovery Plan, published earlier today, the habitat protection group Wildlands Network says the plan fails to adequately consider or incorporate the best available science, rendering it insufficient to ensure Mexican wolf recovery.
